We recommend to clean your outdoor furniture several times a year. We suggest to use an outdoor wood furniture cleaner and follow their instructions. Also remove any cobwebs, leaves or dirt before cleaning and dry thoroughly in the sun after cleaning. We don’t recommend a high pressure washer.2. We recommend to sand and oil your furniture as required throughout the year. The weather will deteriorate timber so the location of the furniture and the weather such as rain and humidity will wear timber at different rates. Using a natural furniture oil will help to maintain the beautiful colour of the timber and hold the necessary moisture in the wood. Please follow the manufacturer’s directions for oiling. Sand lightly when needed.3. If your outdoor furniture gets wet, we suggest that you dry it out in the sun. This will also help to prevent mould and wood rot.4. For best longevity of your outdoor furniture we also suggest that you keep it undercover or cover it when not in use. Keep the furniture under a roof out of direct weather and sun, making the most out of your furniture.5. The metal hardware can become loose over time, so we recommend that you check the screws, hinges and bolts throughout the year. This will help to keep the furniture strong and in the best working condition.Our outdoor furniture is made from hardwood Eucalyptus and is suitable for outdoor use. However as with all timber, the weather will wear the wood. When left outdoors eucalyptus furniture will naturally weather to a silver grey colour. You will begin to notice the greying after a few months. Depending on the amount of sun and rain your furniture is exposed to. You may even notice a few small cracks which is not a structural defect, but a perfectly natural process, as the wood expands and contracts, adjusting to the elements.Following the above guide on a regular basis will help to maintain the beauty, integrity and strength of the timber and allows you to get the most enjoyment from the furniture.
